Lima Noon Optimist Club Distributes Containers For Annual “Toys for Tots” Campaign
Wednesday, October 28, 2020 the Lima Noon Optimist Club in cooperation with The Salvation Army and US Marine Corps Reserve will officially kick-off the Annual Toys for Tots Campaign during their noon luncheon meeting at the BPO Elks Lodge.
For many years now, the Lima Noon Optimist Club has worked in cooperation with The Salvation Army and the US Marine Corps Reserve to provide Christmas toys for less fortunate children in the Lima and Allen County area. The Salvation Army distributes collection boxes to various area businesses, schools and organizations throughout Allen County who participate in the program. Citizens then deposit their new toys into the collection boxes. The program’s success comes from the cooperation of more than 180 locations and the generosity of our community.
Collection boxes can be found in all government buildings, local fire and police departments, local schools, Chief Markets, car dealers and businesses throughout the area.
The Optimist Club asks patrons to purchase a new unwrapped toy and place it in One of the collection boxes. An Optimist member monitors the collection boxes and takes the collected toys to The Salvation Army for distribution at Christmas.
THE TOYS FOR TOTS CAMPAIGN ENDS DECEMBER 11th

Monday, November 9, 2020 marks the start of the Lima Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign and carries on the tradition started in 1891. Area locations include all Chief and Kewpee locations, Hobby Lobby and Walmart.
The National Red Kettle Campaign Kick-off is celebrated Thanksgiving Day, November 26, 2020 during half-time at Dallas AT&T Stadium.
Our goal this year is $125,000. The money raised supports the Christmas effort and the ongoing mission of The Salvation Army throughout the year.
Opportunities for caring individuals, local businesses, organizations, and churches, to volunteer their time to “ring the bell” at one of the traditional Red Kettles are available Monday through Saturday from 10 am – 7 pm through December 24.
Help The Salvation Army make a difference in someone’s life and spread the joy of Christmas this holiday season.
For more information on opportunities at the Kettle, or to schedule a time and location to “ring the bell,” contact Paul Downing at 419.224.9055 ext. 211.
History of the Red Kettle
In 1891, a Salvation Army captain in San Francisco resolved to provide a free Christmas dinner to the areas poor. But how would he pay for the food? From his days as a sailor in Liverpool, England, the captain remembered a large pot, displayed on the Stage Landing, called a Simpsons Pot, where passersby would toss charitable donations. The captain presented the idea to city authorities and received permission to place a similar pot at the Oakland ferry landing at the foot of San Francisco’s Market Street. In its conspicuous position, the pot drew the attention of people going to and from the ferryboats. Another urn, in the ferryboat waiting room, also attracted donations. Thus, Captain Joseph McFee launched a tradition that spread not only throughout the United States, but around the world.
